The Gambian Police Force has on Thursday issued a stern warning against drumming, music and dance during the month of Ramadan, which started on June 6.
This is contained in a press release issued and signed by ASP Lamin Njie Police Public Relations Officer on behalf of the Inspector General of Police on Thursday.
“In honor of the Holy Month of Ramadan, all ceremonies, festivities and programmes that involve drumming, music and dance during the day or at night are prohibited.
“All those engaged in the practice are therefore warned to desist from such acts, otherwise they will be eventually apprehended and face the full force of the law without compromise.”
“The Inspector General of Police is hereby advising the General Public to report any such persons or groups to the police as stern action will be taken against those found wanting of violations.”
“While wishing everyone Ramadan Mubarak, The Inspector General of Police seeks the cooperation of the General Public,” the statement read.
